Yeah, we've been looking at USD prices on Steam for so long that our brains have reserved precious grey matter for automatically calculating the local price taking current rates into account. Sometimes successfully too! Well, it looks like those days will soon be over as the developers of the indie title War for the Overworld
have posted an update relating to regional pricing for their game.
What's that got to do with Australian pricing on Steam? Well, read on!
The following local currencies are now supported by Steam, and as such these regions have new prices in line with the pricing matrix. As above we have submitted the changes to allow these currencies and expect them to be approved in the coming days and weeks. The actual time will depend on Steam of course.
Edit: These changes have been approved by valve now and should be live. However we can not confirm this and if you do not see your currency it is likely that Valve has not officially launched them yet and may be waiting for more developers. If that's the case there's no timescale for the launch but we'd certainly expect them this year, probably in the coming weeks.

So now we wait until we see the glorious Australian Dollarydoo!
Also, the Costa Rican Colon sounds like a very weird night out.
